|This was the first picture I saw of the famous|
TJ smile. It was taken in a small car with four
women who had freed him from the chain.
My first impression of TJ was that he was in pretty good shape, and compared to a lot of dogs kept on chains he was, but on closer inspection he was rather thin, his coat was ragged, and he was lacking muscle tone. Good food and exercise sorted out all of that and otherwise he's been healthy as a horse, particularly for a 12, going on 13, year old dog. He's put on some good solid muscle weight and he's grown an incredibly thick, long, and luxurious coat.
|This was TJ when he first arrived at our house.|
He was looking a little rough.
|His new coat grew in darker and much thicker.|
|He's a handsome dog, and look at that tail!|
